1. Approval of Minutes
- Arthur Ryman
Are there any corrections to last week's
No corrections. Minutes approved.
2. RC1 Status/Vote -
All component leads should be prepared
to vote on RC1 release. Recall the exit criteria for RC1which are described
in the Endgame Rampdown Plan . These are:
At present we have 1 P1 bug unresolved
Chris - I vote No. I'd like to release
a fix for 102364 in addition to 103065.
Tim D - I'd like to see Chris's fix
Craig - I vote Go.
Chuck - I vote No. I'd like to release
a fix for 103807 to correct a JUnit failure.
David - I vote No. We have an NPE
in creating a JSP, 103867. Also 103662 is a deadlock, but I don't have
a fix in hand. We may have a fix by 6pm. for NPE and be able to finish
the deadlock assessment but we may have to defer that to RC2.
Der-Ping - I vote No. We have 2 fixes
to release: 103278, 101720
Tim W - I suggest that we release the
5 fixes that are available.
David - I like suggestion of respinnning
now and verifying the JUnits. Then possibly add other 2 other fixes for
an overnight build.
Naci - I agree we should respin now
with the available fixes.
Arthur - Summary we will realease the
5 availbale fixes now and rebuild the RC1 candidate. Release these fixes
by 4:00PM EDT. David will confirm that fixes have been released vis pserver
then start the new build. If David has fixes available later, we'll rebuild
|Prior to initial RC:
- All P1 bugs addressed, all P2 bugs reviewed
for fix need prior to RC cut
- RC1 produced
- Only non-destabilizing bug fixes, P3 and
above. User impact and cosmetic fixes only will be approved; no API changes

all fixes (enter into Bugzilla record and checkin notes)

4. RC2 Plan/Bug Status
- Jeffrey Liu
We need to stabilize the code, which
means we need to limit changes to high priority problems only. Recall the
1. Review of P1/P2 bugs (by owner)
Chris - OK. I am fixing 1 P2 in RC1
and am raising the priority of a few more for RC2.
Craig - OK.
David - 4 of 5 are OK (the 2.1 editor
conflict is more difficult)
Tim - 1 + 4 others. OK for 4 of
Craig for Ella - This is a performance
issue, but not serious. I'll investigate.
Jeff - OK.
Chuck for Michael - OK, will also move
up some others.
Nitin - Both are under investigation
and may be large fixes.
Chris for Rupam - This will go into
Chuck for Vijay - Need to investigate.
2. Review of deferred serious bugs -
Jeff - We have 45 that have no justification.
Can we handle these by next meeting?
Der-Ping (with 13) - This query
includes some new bugs. These can be resolved in RC2.
Lawrence (with 5) - OK.
Phil (with 5) - OK
Naci for Gerkam (with 4). I'll investgiate
since Gorkem is on vacation.
